This is a meme-in-progress that we create together, please help to further it by sharing your thoughts in the discussion.

I had been musing to my friend Rob on my difficulty of finding the kinds of people that stimulate energetic exchange.  He offered:

Stop looking and do something that others will be attracted to.  Be a magnet.


While I was busy looking, I wasn’t emitting the vibe for others to hone in on. I consumed but wasn’t passing anything on.


Conceive a field of attractivity like gravity, but for information.

Gravity pushes outwards from the emitting body and has the effect of attraction.  Ideas or information flow outwards from the emitting body and also has the attracting effect.  In both cases, attraction spawns interplay / interference / interdependent cause and effect / co-reconfiguration / interlinking / interconnectedness.  Since each as these are now in deep interplay with the rest of the universe.  We’re all built of each other.  We’re all parts of a larger context. Or ultimately, one.

I would say that attraction is a continuum of interconnection-building. Going further, I’d say that it’s the axis of connectedness. The dimension of connectedness.

[how far above spacetime a dimension would this be?]

energetic exchanges: To explore and exchange ideas and their patterns, in short: conceptions.  [Isn’t this what we do in every exchange?]

You know, the feedback loop you get into when you’re feeding off each other, both “on”, being affected while affecting.  exchange ideas and patterns

Resonating together

We say sometimes it just “clicks”.  A mutual attraction that’s like harmonics, resonating together.

We see the power of this idea in intensively attractive […] of the information exchange platforms like the Internet.  How do we communicate?  Through information.

Until just a moment ago on the scale of our development, we could only be influenced by and influence the environment geographically near

Eccentrify.  I just made that up, but it resonates a concept I’m not sure there is already a word for.

To me, to be eccentric is to pluck from the best you know and emit it as a composite.  That in turn affects the next guy’s eccentric composite. And so on…

So I offer:

Upstream and downstream, it has a cohesiveness to it.  You could say it’s pseudo-organic.  Memes begin, reach the zenith of their energetisism and effect on others, and morph over time from distinct energies into their consequences on everything else.

Morphing and branching across time.

[What is reasoned attractivity?]

In each moment, what we focus on stimulates us. We connect our experience of the sense data with any related previous experiences that our pattern-matching minds find.

The broader the set of experiences we have to connect with, the greater the context within which we can place / understand the new experience.

It’s easy to find yourself focused into a frame of reference that extends just a few days into the past and a few more into the future. Perhaps you “think long term” and have a context of a few years, decades or centuries.  In his outstanding book A Short History of Nearly Everything, Bill Bryson goes further:

If you imagine the 4.5 billion odd years of Earth’s history compressed into a normal earthly day, then life begins very early, about 4 A.M., with the rise of the first simple, single-celled organisms, but then advances no further for the next sixteen hours. Not until almost 8:30 in the evening, with the day five-sixths over, has Earth anything to show the universe but a restless skin of microbes. Then, finally, the first sea plants appear, followed twenty minutes later by the first jellyfish and the enigmatic Ediacaran fauna first seen by Reginald Sprigg in Australia. At 9:04 P.M. trilobites swim onto the scene, followed more or less immediately by the shapely creatures of the Burgess Shale. Just before 10 P.m. plants begin to pop up on the land. Soon after, with less than two hours left in the day, the first land creatures follow.

Thanks to ten minutes or so of balmy weather, by 10:24 the Earth is covered in the great carboniferous forests whose residues give us all our coal, and the first winged insects are evident. Dinosaurs plod onto the scene just before 11 P.M. and hold sway for about three-quarters of an hour. At twenty-one minutes to midnight they vanish and the age of mammals begins. Humans emerge one minute and seventeen seconds before midnight. The whole of our recorded history, on this scale, would be no more than a few seconds, a single human lifetime barely an instant. Throughout this greatly speeded-up day continents slide about and bang together at a dip that seems positively reckless. Mountains rise and melt away, ocean basins come and go, ice sheets advance and withdraw. And throughout the whole, about three times every minute, somewhere on the planet there is a flashbulb pop of light marking the impact of a Manson-sized meteor or one even larger. It’s a wonder that anything at all can survive in such a pummeled and unsettled environment. In fact, not many things do for long.

Perhaps an even more effective way of grasping our extreme recentness as a part of this 4.5-billion-year-old picture is to stretch your arms to their fullest extent and imagine that width as the entire history of the Earth. On this scale, according to John McPhee in Basin and Range, the distance from the fingertips of one hand to the wrist of the other is Precambrian. All of complex life is in one hand, “and in a single stroke with a medium-grained nail file you could eradicate human history.”

That sure broadens ones’ perspective.

Yet while earth’s 4.5 billion years stretch almost exactly a third across the 13.7 billion years since the big bang, it may represent just one 4 dimensional slice / plane / membrane / brane in 5th dimensional space.
